So many people are whining about the economy, taxes, government spending, work, family life, or whatever. Very few people have legitimate reason to be whining. SO much energy, time and money is wasted bitching about things you can’t control. Wouldn’t that time and energy be better spent doing something constructive?
I’m guilty… I catch myself whining about my life from time to time. But then I remember how great I really have it… I’m married to the love of my life, and have two wonderful children. I have an amazing career–I love getting up and going to work in the morning. I have a successful business and so many great opportunities presenting themselves.
Sure, I could be whining about working long hours, bitching about all the stuff I haven’t gotten done but where would that get me? Instead you know what I’m doing? As Gary Vaynerchuk would say, I’m killing it. I’m buckling down and getting stuff done.
Next time you start to whine and complain, instead think of what you could be doing to change your situation. If you want something out of your life you’re going to have to make it happen.
“Your BEST? Losers always whine about their best. Winners go home and f**k the prom queen!” – Sean Connery
